    Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton appears to have a short political memory regarding allies and opponents, as her latest invective toward Bernie Sanders backfired on her, thanks to the Internet and an observant audience.

    During a political debate, Clinton mocked Sanders regarding his campaign promise of the implementation of a single-payer health care system.

    Implying that Mr. Sanders was not always such an advocate of the issue, Clinton asked: "I don't know… where was he when I was trying to get health care in '93 and '94?"

    Fortunately for her, Mike Casca, a Sanders spokesman, quickly posted a photo from 1994 in his Twitter account, showing Hillary Clinton giving a speech on ‘health care reform', as the screengrab text suggests, with Sanders standing, literally, right behind her. The Internet was flooded with answers to Clinton's rhetorical question, including video footage from that very speech.

    ​Apparently, Clinton forgot that the Internet never forgets.
